Google Maps Crashes

Firefox just upgraded to 80.0.1 . . . on Mac OS High Sierra . . .

  1. 1 Open new browser window
  2. 2 Go to : http://www.Google.com/maps/
  3. 3 paste or key an address into the "Where?" field, and
  4. 4 BOOM Firefox immediately closes the Google window.

On a Macbook Pro, running Mac OS High Sierra, 10.13.6 FireFox version 75.0 works perfectly, and Google Maps works perfectly.

(Except for the annoying notices to upgrade, which is what was done, finally got tired of getting the upgrade notice so she upgraded and BOOM Firefox doesn't work on Google Maps. So now she's using Safari for Google Maps)

-(

Tip : If the upgrade doesn't work, then don't send the upgrade notices!

When I download almost any type of file, Firefox nicely asks whether I would like to always save the file, or always open it with some program. But for .jpg files, it makes a blanket, hard-coded assumption that I do not want to preserve my choice. I cannot add .jpg to the list of actions in the preferences. The authors of the browser forcibly mandate that a .jpg download must go to a popup, and the user's preferred action cannot be maintained internally.

This is a mistake. I realize someone thought it was a very rational idea. it is not. This is a bug.

How can I work around this mistake in the Firefox design?

The drop-down list with known usernames and passwords extends until below the screen if there is a sufficient number of usernames stored. The funny thing is that the list is scrollable by mouse and arrow (up/down) keys, so it wouldn't be necessary to extend the list that far down. Just until the lower boundary of the current firefox windowwould have been sufficient.

The result is that I can't see (nor select) the usernames that are listed below the screen.

Firefox 75 64 bit on Fedora 32.

I hope this description was clear enough as I'm hesitant to include a screenshot showing all usernames involved on those site.

For anyone who wonders why so many logins: it's a list of email adresses currently in use in a webmail service.


Thanks.

I'm trying to figure out what on earth is wrong with this software. After installing the latest version, unbeknownst to me, after an hour or two of usage the browser fails to connect to any website, at all. Upon closing and re-opening the browser, I'm prompted that "you've launched an older version of Firefox" my bookmarks and history is corrupted, I need to create a new profile. Once the browser actually opens, I check the version, it's now reverted back to 87 where, it begins this absurd cycle all over again, downloading and installing 88.01.

What is this, only compatible with 20h2? My system does not yet have this.

In order to stop this madness. I've removed it, installed v74, threw a policy.json file together to block this from updating itself.
